The Eye Center Doctor
Bart A. Adams, MD is a Board Certified Ophthalmologist and the Medical Director of the East Oregon Surgery Center, the only Type I surgery center in Eastern Oregon. Dr. Adams received his surgical eye training at the Mayo Clinic, in Rochester Minnesota, and was the first surgeon in this area to use foldable implant lenses routinely during cataract surgery.
LASIK Refractive Surgery
LASIK is a quick, virtually pain-free day surgery that can correct the following common vision problems:
- Myopia (nearsightedness)
- Hyperopia (farsightedness)
- Astigmatism (the cornea is oval shaped instead of round)
INTACS Refractive Surgery
INTACS are micro-thin prescription inserts designed to offer crisp, clear, maintenance-free vision. They gently reshape the curvature of the cornea to correct mild nearsightedness. The procedure for placement of INTACS is quick, simple and virtually painless.
What is a Cataract?
A cataract is a clouding of the eye's naturally clear lens. The lens focuses light rays on the retina at the back of the eye to produce a sharp image of what we see. When the lens becomes cloudy, the light rays cannot pass easily through it, and the image becomes blurry. There are no medications, eye drops, exercises or glasses that will cause cataracts to disappear once they have formed. Surgery is the only way to remove a cataract. When you are not able to see well enough to do the things you like to do, cataract surgery should be considered.
